Career and Technical Education (CTE) provides students the opportunity to explore multiple career fields across 17 Career Clusters. Students can specialize in a career area that aligns with their passion. CTE programs are available to students at the middle and high school levels, as well as both campuses of the Chesterfield Career and Technical Center (Courthouse and Hull).
CTE offers students the opportunity to earn industry recognized certifications related to their coursework, and to participate and take leadership positions in their Career and Technical Student Organization (CTSO). Students also have the opportunity for experiential learning opportunities, known as Work-Based Learning (WBL) experiences, which are related to a specific occupational area. In specific CTE courses, students also have the opportunity to earn dual enrollment credit aligned towards earning an Associate’s Degree.
